26165230 the G129C mutation in gammaC-crystallin, which is associated with autosomal dominant congenital nuclear cataract, perturbed the unfolding process by promoting the accumulation of two distinct aggregation-prone intermediates under mild denaturing conditions.
24281366 Exome sequencing in developmental eye disease leads to identification of causal variants in GJA8, CRYGC, PAX6 and CYP1B1.
23954869 We confirm that congenital cataract is associated with a CRYGC gene mutation.
23441109 identified a CRYAA mutation in family A and a CRYGC mutation in family B with congenital cataract
22876111 A nonsense mutation c.471G>A in CRYGC is associated with autosomal dominant congenital nuclear cataracts and microcornea in a Chinese pedigree.
22052681 Molecular modeling and spectroscopic studies indicated that the mutation impaired the tertiary structure of gamma C crystallin by modifying the H-bonding network in the C-terminal domain.
21436266 Transgenic expression of mutant CRYGC5bpd gamma-crystallin at near-physiological levels causes lens opacities and fiber cell defects, confirming the pathogenicity of this mutation.
21423869 Two novel nonsynonymous variations and four reported variations in CRYAB, CRYGC, CRYGD, and GJA8, were observed.
19390652 Report a new nonsense mutation (Y56X) in CRYGD and a prev'ly reported missense mutation (R12C) in CRYAA associated with nuclear autosomal dominant congenital cataract in Brazilian families. A new polymorphism (S119S) in CRYGC was observed in one family.
19204787 Identification of a novel nonsense mutation in CRYGC in a Chinese family with autosomal dominant congenital nuclear cataracts and microcornea.
17679936 This is the first case of phenotypic heterogeneity in the primary congenital cataract specifically associated with the R168W mutation in the CRYGC gene.
15322286 the loss of interactions of T5P mutant of the gammaC-crystallin with other crystallins may play a larger role than the protection afforded by chaperone-like activity in Coppock-like cataract.
12876325 In gammaD-crystallin, methylation is exclusively at Cys 110, whereas in gammaC- and gammaB-crystallins, the principal methylation site is Cys 22 with minor methylation at Cys 79
12457849 calculation of the standard free-energy by equilibrium unfolding transition in guanidine hydrochloride
11904153 The T5P mutation obviously changes conformation and decreases conformational stability.
